Thank you very much dear Laurie, and thanks for liking my logo. i don't even know if it represents what I was trying to express very well.
The whole idea is based on how zidisha works. The opened palms represent how zidisha warmly welcomes every individual, no matter your age, colour, country, language, ethnicity, background etc. the heart represents how zidisha have every member at heart. The 2 human-like drawings represent a male and a female.......meaning zidisha support both genders.

i would like to know if there is something i should have added or something that shouldn't be there. and also if the colours used are ok.
thank you.

Purchase of camping tents

Hi Moses :-) Sorry my reply is so delayed, I haven't been checking Zidisha as much lately... I had a quick look, & it looks like this crowdfunding platform should be compatible:

But, I don't know much about it, so look into it yourself first, just to check its legitimacy etc... But you don't have to be a US citizen for that one apparently, so thought I'd send in case it was helpful :-)

I'm surprised it asks you to be a US citizen for GoFundMe, that's strange? I'm an Australian not US citizen, so I can't help much in that department...

I really hope things are looking up a bit... Hopefully life is getting a little easier on your end, bit by bit :-)

All the best with everything... If its feeling a bit stressful or daunting, & you need help getting dates etc updated for your payments, it might just be worth reaching out to the Zidisha team? I think this might be the place to ask for help, but I'm not 100% sure:

Really hope your world is making you smile... I hope things have gotten at least slightly easier... A lot of businesses have been doing it tough, I'm so sorry...

All the best Moses - Emma
